Description

Understanding Calvinism in our hearts as well as in our heads.

A warm-hearted, accessible introduction to the five points of Calvinism, showing how a true understanding of them can make you a more humble and loving Christian.

For some Calvinism is synonymous with being argumentative, arrogant, and unloving. Author Jeff Medders shows how taking Calvinism to heart should fuel a love of Christ and his people that builds others up, rather than tearing them down.

Commendations

A great book on how to be robustly Reformed and savour the doctrines of grace without being a jerk about it. I wish I had read this book when I was in seminary. This book is about how theological knowledge and Christlike love go together, and if they don’t, then you’re doing it wrong.

Maybe in another generation the term "humble Calvinism" won't seem like such an oxymoron. If so, this encouraging and challenging book will have been used by God to help us live up to what we believe.

The words Humble and Calvinism probably feel at odds to many of us. Jeff Medders speaks straight to the elephant in the echo chamber, showing himself to be the chief of prideful Calvinists and charting his subsequent journey toward humble Calvinism. For years I've watched Jeff take a low road, aware of his own desire to achieve but instead choosing humble faithfulness. He is the right person to write this book and he has handled it in humility, with beautiful writing and rich theology.

To say I loved this book would be selling it short

Noah, Heirs Magazine

It was funny, entertaining, engaging, informative, encouraging, and convicting all at the same time...... continue reading

A hilarious page-turner which will stir your affections for Jesus more than any sweet-smelling tulip.

Jonny Ivey, Heirs Magazine, March 1st 2019

It’s for people who haven’t heard of Calvinism. It’s for people who dislike Calvinism because of arrogant Calvinists. But above all, Humble Calvinism is for arrogant Calvinists.... continue reading

“Fantastic! A must-read!”

(Review written for 'Humble Calvinism')

Oh I love this. It's easy to read, it's warm, gracious, honest and so important! You don't have to be a Calvinist to read it; I think it would be really helpful for any Christian to read. But I DO think calvinists should read it. I really do!
Perhaps it could be compulsory summer reading for young people about to start university? So much grief could be avoided if we'd all humble ourselves and treasure Christ more.
What better way to learn about Calvinist doctrine than by reading a book that embeds it in humility and grace?

I really hope calvinists will be humble enough to read it!

“Helpful!”

(Review written for 'Humble Calvinism')

A nice summary of TULIP. Really good to give to someone who hasn't thought about Election before.

“Calvinism is About Jesus, not TULIPs”

(Review written for 'Humble Calvinism')

Call me a sceptic - but I thought 'Humble Calvinism' would be a really nice stick to beat grumpy Calvinists around the head with. In a: "Hey you! Grumpy Calvinist, read this and repent!" kind of way. What we have here instead, is a really warm, exposition of what it means to believe the five so-called doctrines of grace, how they take us to Jesus, and God's kindness to us in the gospel.

My only caveat is I don't think it's a book I could give to someone who is older than a millennial. There are too many pop-culture references, slangy turns of phrase, and Americanisms to give it the wide audience it deserves.

Otherwise I loved it. It made me praise God for his salvation in Jesus. What more do you want?
